            The staff were very helpful and informative regarding the local area. The hotel was cheaper than central locations and taxi"s into the city centre were very cheap, 10minutes

          • Single
            6.2

            the pool was not on site was across the road and public can use it, was a long way from downtown also close to airport is only advantage.

          • Family with children
            7.8

            The hotel has 2 buildings on opposite sides of the road - we stayed in the new side - brand new - it was well appointed and would recommend to stay here

            The hotel was great - just make sure they have your booking, they blamed Booked.net for only giving the booking to them minutes before we arrived, but we booked a month ago - poor form as we did not get adjoining rooms like we asked.

          • Group of friends
            5.0

            Not much really. We booked this hotel to be close to the airport, but it actaully wasn't that close. We could as well have chosen a nicer one in the city center instead. The room was ok, but there isn't much else to say.

            The staff was really unprofessional and even rude at times. Not good considering this is a 4 star hotel. We later noticed that this hotel apparently belongs to a hotel school which explains why certains things seemed unpolished. There are 3 restaurants belonging to the hotel complex which is necessary as there isn't much else around. We had dinner at the Hot Pot restaurant which was a disaster - staff was unprofessional and inefficient (when we came the restaurant was empty, 4 staff members were taking care of us, but we didn't feel properly served, they failed to properly explain the menu to us or how the hot pot meal works, for example), food was overpriced and the atmosphere was sterile. Breakfast was poor as well, food wasn't refilled when empty and the only thing we found we could eat was toast and jelly. We stayed in loads of nice hotel sin Vietnam, but this was a big disappoitnment, especially as it was our most expensive one.

          • Group of friends
            4.2

            Location is really close to the airport, that's the only advantage of the hotel

            Very old fashined hotel, very small rooms with old conditioners not working properly

          • Single
            7.8

            Close to the airport. Good breakfast.

            Hard bed, but it's normal for Asia countries.

          • Single
            8.8

            friendliness and courtesy of staff, closeness to airport, efficient pick-up at airport, efficient drop-off at airport, provision of take-away breakfast since early morning departure missed breakfast opportunity, good (hotel-associated?) restaurant across the road.

          • Single
            7.4

            Personnel attention, airport transportation service, cleanliness, good breakfast

          • Single
            8.8

            Friendly staff, great and cheap massage near the hotel and tasty food.

            Location is not very convenient.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            It was located close to the airport so we didn't have a long drive to catch our flight

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            It was comfortable and the staff were helpful

            Some of the staff could not understand spoken english and could not reply clearly although we know that english is not there first language it would be helpful if additional training was given to the staff. Also this hotel is not near the city center as we expected.
